It is very important that the Constanta Forum focuses on the southeastern region of NATO, a region in which we have both conventional and non-conventional security threats, such as cyber attacks. We have an area of priority topics and themes that deserve to be discussed between officials, civil society, academia and business partners.
It is an excellent Security Forum for the Black Sea and the Balkans. It is a valuable initiative to invite top leaders and experts from around the world to discuss the common security challenges.
I am glad to be present here at this honourable and interesting conference, with very lively debates, with very interesting speakers. The forum helped me to see more clearly certain aspects of security about the Black Sea region.
